Ex­AM­PLE 4 de­scend­inG and as­cend­inG chords

Guitar Techniques - - Les­son: Funk -

Ronny’s chord knowl­edge was pretty ex­ten­sive, as demon­strated in this ex­am­ple. Fun­da­men­tally it cre­ates in­ter­est over a static chord pro­gres­sion (here Dm to F/G) but the ap­proach taken is a lit­tle dif­fer­ent - the up­per step-wise melody was cre­ated first and then this was turned into chords de­rived from the D Do­rian scale. Although this may be a new ap­proach to chord build­ing for you, it fo­cuses you more specif­i­cally on melodic con­tent rather than just chord shapes that get the job done. Need­less to say, stan­dard chord play­ing will seem pretty pedes­trian af­ter trav­el­ling down this path.
